A. Williams Construction: About Us
A.Williams Construction and the Williams family, who work tirelessly to keep moving forward, has maintained a reputation of being dependable and reliable over the years. By performing quality work and affording opportunities to other minority and women owned businesses, Williams has changed the landscape of neighborhoods and communities and has impacted the lives of the people of New York.
In 1985, Williams started working as the primary excavation contractor on the Nehemiah Homes in Brownsville and East New York in Brooklyn. They successful completed the excavation for over 2500 homes before moving on to the South Bronx with Nehemiah.
As a specialty contractor there were very few opportunities available to Williams. Not wanting to be labeled as a one dimensional contractor Williams decided to bid work with the New York City parks department as a General Contractor. As such a contractor they worked on the upgrade and renovation of dozens of parks in the five boroughs. By taking this step and learning from the administrators at the Parks department Williams was then able to compete in the open market with other excavation and foundation contractors for larger and larger projects.
One of the earliest and most notable Foundation projects was at Foley Square in lower Manhattan where Carl Williams inadvertently discovered an African Burial ground from the 1800's. Several years later the General Services Administration invited Williams back to reinter the remains of these former slaves at a special memorial.
Williams continued to bid on projects as a general contractor. They have worked with Tishman, Bovis and Turner on numerous large excavations and foundation projects all over the city. In addition to this Williams has performed numerous projects in Harlem, including the Magic Johnson Theater, Harlem Center and the Harlem Auto Mall.
Across the river in the Bronx, Williams was awarded its largest project by DASNY at the Bronx Criminal Courthouse Complex. Here Williams excavated over 125,000 cubic yards of earth and poured over 10,000 cubic yards of reinforced concrete. In 2002 this was the largest active excavation and foundation project in the City of New York.
